We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2017 takes place and pay our respects to their Elders, past, present, & future. We also acknowledge the invaluable artistic and cultural legacy of Australia’s Indigenous peoples, who over many thousands of years have engaged with the natural world and its forces through their art, and who have been sustainable stewards of this land.
